Ever since I stumbled across this web site that were displaying this boat. I am 62 years of age but I have been salvating over this boat like a 15 year old boy on a date with the head cheerleader.

I like the stick steering set-up. The layout and just about everything. It could be a tad longer just short of 16'. But Nothing is perfect.

Any of you that own this boat care to comment if I have reason to drool ?

Or should I keep looking ? Fish for crappie 90 % of time.

I have a boat very similar stick steering bass tracker have had the boat 8 years or so . You will not go wrong its easy to fish out of and very comfortable to fish out of. Only problem I have is the foot control for the trolling motor a little cramped up there. I'm thinking about a hand control trolling motor other than that you won't go wrong....jim

If I was to but another stick steer it would be the War Eagle 754. Check it out. War Eagle Boats - Boats - Stick Steering Models - VS (http://www.wareagleboats.com/boats/detail.asp?id=13&catID=3)

It would be nice having the livewell on the side. You just don't realize how much room they take up being in the middle. If you buy the 16ft model go with as much motor that you can.

Yes that War Eagle 754 VS is REAL nice. Closest dealer for me is about a four hour drive.

Anybody got idea how much they cost ?

Man I just looked at one this afternoon in Searcy AR it was red with vinyl and a 60 HP 4-stroke Yahama. I did not ask the price but can give them a call tomorrow. I went there to look at a Predator. My wife said the 754 did not have a place for her to lie down.:eek:
